Control Panels

1. Flygt - a Xylem Brand MAS 801

As part of a complete pumping system, the MAS 801 pump monitoring system from Flygt - a Xylem Brand helps reduce costs over a pump’s lifetime. Thanks to its 24/7 on-site overview of pump data that simplifies methods for diagnostics, this technology enables continuous station health checks on pump operation. In addition, with three-axis vibration, current measurement, and temperature and leakage measurements, the user can take timely, preventive measures for increased lifetime of the pumping equipment. 704-409-9700;

2. Gorman-Rupp Integrinex Advanced

Integrinex Advanced lift station controls from Gorman-Rupp are custom-engineered to meet unique system requirements. When equipped with FloSmart technology, the control system can detect a pump obstruction and run a cleaning cycle until the debris clears. Upon detection, the device initiates a cleaning operation without interfering with the operation of the pump station. When the cycle is complete, the pump is ready to return to normal operation. If the clog remains, the cleaning sequence repeats until the blockage is cleared. FloSmart helps maximize uptime while reducing maintenance costs. 419-755-1011;

3. Greyline Instruments PSL 5.0

The PSL 5.0 pump station level controller from Greyline Instruments has redundant level sensing. It includes a noncontacting ultrasonic sensor and can be connected to a loop-powered pressure sensor for redundant sensing in applications with foam or grease. It will continuously recalibrate the pressure sensor and automatically switch back and forth from ultrasonic to the pressure sensor as required. It is designed for lift stations, wet wells and storage tanks. Calibration and relay setpoints are easy to enter through the user-friendly keypad and menu system. An automatic pump runtime logging and reporting system helps operators to plan pump maintenance and identify lazy pumps before they fail. It includes an isolated 4-20mA output and six programmable control relays for pump control, pump alternation and level alarms. An intrinsically safe sensor and a built-in data logger are optional. 315-788-9500;

Lift Stations/Components

4. Epoxytec CPP Sprayliner MH

Designed for sanitary sewer collections systems with underground utility jobs in mind, CPP Sprayliner MH from Epoxytec can be sprayed using heated plural-component equipment up to 250 mils per pass. It has high moisture tolerance, with hydrogen sulfide resistance and sealed inflow-and-infiltration barrier protection. Similar to standard CPP once cured, this version is packaged more conveniently for applicators seeking to spray with heated plural-component equipment. It is formulated for rehabilitation and lining of sanitary sewer collections systems (manholes, cylindrical lift stations and pipe). 877-463-7699;

5. Industrial Flow Solutions OverWatch

OverWatch from Industrial Flow Solutions is a modular concept designed in all stainless steel and performs all the functionality of a traditional lifting station without the need for additional equipment. Specifically designed to absorb the air/fluid mix flowing in from the gravity lines, it operates by variable-speed drives, using a sensor at the inlet combined with control panel logic to adjust in-line with the incoming flow, eliminating hydraulic surges while automatically adapting to constantly changing flow rates. This operating mode enables materials to move through the system without causing blockages and provides a long-term durable solution, with minimal need to replace, repair or maintain the wastewater system. 860-399-5937;

6. Legacy Building Solutions tension fabric buildings

Tension fabric buildings from Legacy Building Solutions provide a high level of flexibility for a variety of building applications. They use a durable, rigid frame in place of hollow-tube, open web truss hoop framing. The strength of the structural steel frame provides the ability to easily customize buildings to the exact width, length and height required. In addition to long clear spans, the buildings have straight sidewalls that maximize the useable square footage inside the structure. The design allows for the ability to add lean-tos, mezzanines and sidewall doors. The structures are engineered to provide desired overhangs or handle additional loads for items such as sprinklers and conveyors. The solid structural steel I-beams are not vulnerable to unseen corrosion originating inside a tube. There are multiple coating options available for all steel components, including hot-dip galvanizing, primer and powder-coat paint. 877-259-1528;

7. Pollardwater Premium Ultra-Grease Block

Premium Ultra-Grease Blocks from Pollardwater are designed to greatly reduce grease, fat and oil accumulation. They are simple and safe to use and help decrease jetting and grease disposal costs. The block dissipates in 30 to 90 days in normal water flow rates, and it offers a continuous dosage by hanging the block halfway into the lift station water, adjacent to the highest flow. A rope for hanging is included. 800-437-1146;

8. PRIMEX Arc Armor

Multiple-compartment Arc Armor enclosures from PRIMEX reduce the risk of injury resulting from arc flash and electric shock by limiting access to electrical equipment capable of producing arc flash incidents. The control and power circuitry are isolated in separate compartments, where only control voltage is present (120 volt max), thus preventing unnecessary exposure of operators to arc flash. The enclosures are designed to reduce exposure to arc flash and arc blast with a multicompartment design and single-wall construction. There is a single-sheet drip cap with rolled edge drip loops on free-standing models. They have 304L stainless steel construction, electrostatically precipitated white polyester powder coating that reduces heat buildup, and three-point padlockable operating handles. Free-standing, wall-mount and pole-mount versions are available. 844-477-4639;

9. RELINER/Duran Inside Drop Bowls

Eliminate troublesome outside drops and clean up failed inside drops. RELINER/Duran Inside Drop Bowls and stainless steel pipe support brackets simply bolt to the manhole wall and can be cleaned and inspected from above. The compact, low-profile bowls are available in dozens of sizes to fit any application. Modular Manhole Invert Channels improve manhole hydraulics, reducing maintenance, turbulence and odor. 800-508-6001;

10. Sauereisen SewerGard 210XHB

SewerGard 210XHB from Sauereisen is an epoxy protective lining specifically formulated for municipal wastewater environments. It provides a chemical-resistant barrier for concrete, masonry, brick and steel substrates. As a 100% solids epoxy polymer, it sets fast and provides a quicker return to service. The high-strength lining enables high-build capabilities from 10 up to 300 mils in a single coat, reducing need for a second coat. It is moisture-tolerant to accommodate damp substrates and may be applied to SSD substrates, reducing time spent waiting for the substrate to dry out. It is also resistant to hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid, microbiologically induced corrosion and wastewater treatment chemicals. Installation is completed using plural-component spray equipment. 412-963-0303;

SCADA Systems

14. GE Digital Proficy iFIX 6.1

Proficy iFIX 6.1 from GE Digital enables smart operators by leveraging the latest technologies to deliver greater efficiency for operations while speeding time-to-insight for system integrators. It includes a native OPC UA client driver, web-based configuration with automatic tag population in its database, and high-performance alarm-related Dynamos to decrease deployment time while increasing operational efficiency in a secure-by-design method to improve equipment uptime and reduce cost and risk. In addition to an HTML5 optional interface, it has a graphical engine to modernize the HMI/SCADA experience to reduce operator errors and improve response time to events. 800-433-2682;

15. Smith & Loveless Force Main Sync

Force main pressures vary; and without accounting for the variable conditions, reduced service life and a multitude of other issues arise. These phenomena result in impeller and volute erosion, reduced bearing and seal life, excessive pump noise, and vibration. Force Main Sync from Smith & Loveless monitors hydraulics in the common force main to keep pumping at the required flow rate. Using a programmable logic controller touch-screen human-machine interface, a variable-frequency drive and a force main sensor, it constantly senses force main pressure and automatically adjusts the VFD to maintain a constant flow rate, no matter how many stations are online. 800-898-9122;
